Hello, my name is Anja Mutić. I’m a traveler who writes and a writer who travels. Born in Zagreb, Croatia, I’ve lived, worked and traveled on all the continents, except Antarctica.
Based in New York since 1999, I worked as a travel editor for Rough Guides and ShermansTravel.com before going freelance in 2004.
My writing – which won several awards – has appeared in The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, New York Magazine, National Geographic Traveler, Condé Nast Traveler, BBC Travel, Lonely Planet, Time Out, Travel + Leisure, Caribbean Travel & Life and Spa Magazine, to name just a few.
I’ve worked as an author on a dozen+ guidebooks for major publishers and penned a variety of articles for print and online publications.
I’ve written about destinations far and wide but my particular expertise lies with Croatia (and the countries of former Yugoslavia), South America and Portugal.
While I cover a range of beats from luxury travel and spas to outdoor adventure and culture, I have a real passion for unearthing the unusual in offbeat destinations.
I hosted several Lonely Planet travel videos, taught an online travel writing class at Mediabistro and worked as correspondent and travel expert for Jetsetter.
